Only 2 points shy of Top 5, with fellow Dutch rider Shana van der Vlist sitting on 5th with 122 points, Lynn has shown fierce determination to make her presence known come racing, battling with the best at just 16 years of age.

Given Lynn is racing only 2nd full WMX season, having finished 11th Overall in 2018 WMX Championship, the calm, calculating #172 has shown enough tenacity, and skill on bike to be future podium contender for sure.

As Lynn says: ‘To race, do my best, give 120% and finish the race with a good result is always my goal’.

Jumping to YZ250F has been learning curve for the teenager, yet Lynn has adapted quickly, making most of gaining traction for improved jump on start-line to run up-front with seasoned racers.

#172: ‘For sure the Yamaha 250F brings me much better starts. It’s my second year in the WMX class and now I know a little bit where my place is and I want to fight for every position’.

With Imola track pushing riders flow and rhythm railing ruts, landing jumps and handling hard-pack surface, Lynn measures each race experience as invaluable for making improvements in race-craft, technique and mental know-how.

#172: ‘I’m getting better and better on hard-pack so I’ll do my best to train these next few weeks and be ready for the last round’.

‘It’s definitely a great season so far. And it will be a really great season if I can climb up to 5th. I’m going to do my best and then we will see’.
